The Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities (Bracknell Forest Council, Reading Borough Council, The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council) are working in partnership to produce a Joint Minerals & Waste Plan which will guide minerals and waste decision making in the Plan area up until 2036.
The Joint Minerals & Waste Plan will build upon the formerly adopted minerals and waste plans for the Berkshire area, and improve, update and strengthen the policies and provide details of strategic sites that are proposed to deliver the vision.
The first stage in plan-preparation was the ‘Issues and Options’ Consultation, conducted in summer 2017.
The second stage in plan-preparation was the ‘Draft Plan’ Consultation, conducted in summer 2018.
Following completion of the consultation, the results were analysed and included in the JCEB Draft Plan Consultation Summary Report. The report seeks to detail who responded, whether the policies and sites were considered sound and what amendments were proposed.
This summary of responses report is a guide for stakeholders and the Central & Eastern Berkshire Authorities to review the responses received. It will be used, together with the full responses and any further information collected or received, to prepare for the next consultation (the ‘Proposed Submission Consultation’) which is scheduled to be carried out in 2019.
